To provide library patrons with home access to these resources, North Carolina libraries often provide patrons with an NC LIVE password. (Please note: If you use your library card number or another method to access these resources, you will not be impacted and may continue to use that method.)
2012-13 NC LIVE remote access passwords will expire on September 30, 2013.
Your library's 2013-14 password is now active. Please contact your local library to get the new password. There will be a two-month grace period (August 1-September 30) during which time both the 2012-13 and 2013-14 passwords will allow users to access NC LIVE resources.
If you aren't sure how to access NC LIVE from home, please get in touch with the staff at your local library, who will be happy to provide you with instructions.
The Open Library NC Project is a collaboration between the Internet Archive and NC LIVE. Because of this collaboration, all of North Carolina has access to a large-scale shared downloadable eBook collection called the Open Library eBook Lending Collection. The eBooks in this collection are digital scans of books contributed by libraries around the country.
Today’s world of always-online smartphones and ubiquitous Wi-Fi makes it hard to imagine the online landscape faced by North Carolina libraries in 1998, when NC LIVE was first founded.
This spring marks the 15th anniversary of NC LIVE, and to celebrate this milestone, the NC LIVE logo now has a new look. Today, we're unveiling the new logo on the NC LIVE website, and soon, library patrons can expect to see it on library websites across North Carolina.
For two weeks in February, staff of NC LIVE, North Carolina libraries, and vendor partners participated in six regional meetings of the North Carolina Small Business Center Network (NC SBCN).
During the past 15 years, many North Carolinians have used NC LIVE services, whether through the NC LIVE website, or through local North Carolina libraries, and we want to hear from you!

Both the Mergent Intellect product and Hoover's Online are currently functioning normally for both in-library and at-home users. Intellect searches that return a large number of results will still require a long processing time, but overall processing time has improved.
